Anwar Al Awlaki New Video Advocates Killing Of American Civilians/Killing of Fellow Soldiers by Muslims Serving in the Military
Jihadist forums, such as this one, announced the AQAP (alQaeda in the Arabic Pennisula) release of Awlaki interview, gave download links and voila it's on JihadTube. Then on to embedding on websites such as this one.
Same ole kill stuff & praise for those doing the attempted/killing. It's in Arabic but never fear, someone will translate it soon.(Video with English subtitles)
[...]"Those who might be killed in a plane are merely a drop of water in a sea," he said in the video in response to a question about Muslim groups that disapproved of the airliner plot because it targeted civilians.
Al-Awlaki used the 45-minute video to justify civilian deaths — and encourage them — by accusing the United States of intentionally killing a million Muslim civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
American civilians are to blame, he said, because "the American people, in general, are taking part in this and they elected this administration and they are financing the war."
He added that the Prophet Muhammad also sent forces into battles that claimed civilian lives.[Trying to smooth things over - Mo ordained it so it's OK...ed]
The video was produced by the media arm of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, though the exact nature of al-Awlaki's ties with the group and possible direct role in it are unclear. The U.S. says he is an active participant in the group, though members of his tribe have denied that. [It's called Taqiyya ― Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah]
For its part, al-Qaida appears to be trying to make use of his recruiting power by putting him in its videos. Its media arm said Sunday's video was its first interview with the cleric.Splode him already.
Update: Awlaki also is encouraging Muslims to kill fellow soldiers as Nidal Hasan did at Ft Hood
A radical U.S.-born Muslim cleric is urging Muslims serving in the U.S. Army to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.Gibbs was quick to point out today: "U.S. is actively searching for Awlaki". One should search under the bed of Yemeni President Saleh.... Awlaki should be there with his prostitutes
In a video posted Sunday on Islamist militant websites, Anwar al-Awlaki said he justifies the deaths of U.S. soldiers because Americans have intentionally killed what he said were millions of Muslim civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Update II: MEMRI's video with English subtitles.
